Pop Up Doctor Who Screening: VENGEANCE ON VAROS

DOCTOR WHO - Vengeance on Varos

Some Doctor Who stories are known for being imaginative and escapist…and others for reflecting on contemporary issues. Vengeance on Varos is one such story. Produced in the mid-1980s, Vengeance on Varos is an insightful piece focusing on violence in media…and created a wellspring of controversy. Has it aged well? Please join the Chicago Doctor Who
